TDoR is held every November 20, which the world – particularly the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community – marks to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the TG community; as well as to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of transphobia, or the hatred or fear of transgender and gender non-conforming people. Founded in 1998 by Gwendolyn Ann Smith, a transgender graphic designer, columnist, and activist, to memorialize the murder of Rita Hester in Allston, Massachusetts, the TDoR has evolved from the web-based project when it was started, into an international day of action observed in over 185 cities throughout more than 20 countries.

In a move eyed to at least help highlight the transgender (TG) community in the Philippines, Bahaghari Center for LGBT Research, Education and Advocacy (Bahaghari Center) has mounted a photographic campaign, “No different”, for the Transgender Day of Remembrance 2012.

This effort is part of the earlier “I dare to care about equality”, a photographic campaign calling for everyone to take a more proactive stance in fighting discrimination done by Bahaghari Center as part of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO), celebrated every May 17.
